Contra Costa County's 10-Day DUI Rule

How Many Days After a DUI Do I have to request a DMV Hearing?

Upon arrest for DUI, the arresting officer will confiscate your license. Exceptions to this rule include out-of-state licenses, blowing a low BAC, and drug-related arrests. Once your license is confiscated, you only have ten days to request a hearing from the DMV. Our Walnut Creek DUI lawyer, Anthony Blalock, provides you with the information you need to navigate this process effectively.
